    Hello,

    I buy a lot of stuff from the US and get it sent to the UK, I also lived in the US for quite a while. Shipping to the UK is easy, the only extra process needed is a customs form which the shipping company will provide, you just need to ask them for it. What company you want to use to ship is up to you, UPS, FedEx, DHL, USPS etc. When I lived in the states I generally used UPS because I wanted tracking all the way and a signature on delivery. Most of the stuff I buy now though is sent USPS and generally takes around 2 weeks to arrive, and is also the cheapest service.

    You need to consider what it is you're sending. If you've sold something and the buyer has paid via PayPal then you need to use a tracked delivery service to ensure you and the buyer get PayPal protection. Also, if it's over a certain value you need to use a signed for delivery service (I'm not sure what the limit is in the US but in the UK if you sell something over £150 you need to send it via a signed for delivery service to get PayPal protection).

    It's pretty easy to send something, no more hassle than sending something within the US.

    what he said.

    i stick to usps only when shipping within US. When international, UPS is the way to go.
